Saturday, the Two Creeks Forest Conservation Area hiking trail in South Dundas will be named in honour of its champion, Don Graham.
The Township of South Dundas, South Nation Conservation, and other supporters will hold a dedication ceremony this Saturday, November 3, 2012 to name the Two Creeks Forest Conservation Area hiking trail as the “Don Graham Trail,” in honor of long time resident and volunteer Don Graham.
The dedication is planned Saturday November 3, at 11 a.m. at the trail head of Two Creeks Forest Conservation Area, on County Road 2, between Morrisburg and Iroquois, near the west end of Lakeshore Drive.
South Dundas and South Nation Conservation will host a nature outing following the ceremony at noon, which will include a hike along the trail.
Local officials decided to name the trail after Graham because of his work in creating it.
“Don has worked tirelessly to promote a natural trail system for our area,” said South Dundas Mayor Steven Byvelds.
“The Don Graham Trail will honour his desire to ensure that the residents of South Dundas have such a trail for our enjoyment.”
Don Graham, a professional Landscape Architect, Harvard trained, has been offering his time, imagination and expertise towards development in this area for well over 30 years.
South Nation Conservation owns and maintains the Two Creeks Forest Conservation Area, which has trails as well as other amenities.
“We are so proud and pleased to partner with South Dundas to honor Don Graham in this way,” said Angela Coleman, Director of Marketing and Communications with South Nation Conservation.
“He is held in such high regard by his peers and staff – we are so fortunate to have worked with him on the Two Creeks Forest Project.”
